Announcing The 100 Years of Disney Blogathon!

Walt Disney Studios is celebrating their 100th anniversary this year and we will be joining in on the festivities by hosting the fantasmagorical 100 Years of Disney Blogathon, running from September 15-18th, 2023. 

Disney is one of the largest entertainment corporations in the world today but way back in 1923 it was just one man and a little mouse named Mickey. 

Help us celebrate this colorful film studio by joining in on the fun! We will also be giving away some terrific prizes and on Silver Scenes you can enjoy Disney-themed posts all month long leading up to the event. 

For those of you who are unfamiliar with blogathons, they are simply a hosted theme writing event that you can take part in if you have a blog. All you need do is create a supercalifragilistic post that goes along with the theme ( Walt Disney ) and share the link to your post with us so that we can include it on a master list for others to enjoy. 


What You Can Post About

For this event, you've got a TON of topics you can write about. There's a great big heffalump-size of material waiting for your selection! You can make a post about Walt Disney himself, any of the animated films and shorts that the studio made, the live-action films ( over 150 titles! ), the television series, the actors and actresses who had contracts with the studio or one of the numerous behind-the-scenes personnel ( e.g. Peter Ellenshaw, Robert Stevenson ). You could also write about a Disney character ( e.g. Goofy ), a role in a film ( Julie Andrews as Mary Poppins ), or a history of the studio itself. You can even write a review of a Disney record album or book - including coloring books and comic books. If it has anything to do with Disney you are good to go! 

Here's a recap of that above mess: 

  • Animated Films & Shorts
  • Live-Action Films ( including TV movies ) & Shorts
  • Television Series
  • Any Actor/Actress who had a Disney contract
  • Behind-the-Scenes Personnel
  • Disney Characters
  • One Role in a Film
  • A History of the Studio or a branch of the studio ( e.g. The Special-Effects Department )
  • Disney Memorabilia
  • Disney Music
  • or Somethin' Special

The Not-So-Complicated Rules of the Event

Rules? Who needs rules? We have no rules here. Well, alright....maybe one. You can pick any topic that is related to Walt Disney Studios provided it is focused on something between the years 1923-1996. After all, this is a classic film blog! 

Old posts are always welcomed, too, if you re-post them with one of the new Disney banners ( down below ).

We'll be announcing the prizes in our giveaway at a later date, but for now.....every entry in the blogathon gives you an extra "ticket" for the giveaway, so the more posts the merrier!


Ready to let the magic begin? Just click on the comment box below and leave your name, blog site, and the topic you would like to write about. You can also email us at silverbankspictures at gmail ( you know the rest ). And be sure to grab a banner to post on your blog to help spread the word!

  2. Oh man, so many options!!!! Hmm. Could I contribute a couple of top ten lists, like my Top Ten Animated Disney Movies and also my Top Ten Live Action Disney Movies?

    1. That would be great! Cover as much territory as you can. :-)

  3. Put me down for Kurt Russell and Disney!

  4. Can I write a post about The Three Lives of Thomasina? From Gill at Realweegiemidget Reviews

    1. Yes!! That's a sweet glad you're covering it.

    2. Hi there, sorry but can I change my choice to The Black Hole ?

  5. Hi, ladies! I'd like to write about that DuckTales five-parter, "Treasure of the Golden Suns," if that's OK.

  6. Can I do my top ten Silly Symphonies?

    1. Yes, of course. What would a Disney blogathon be without a post on Silly Symphonies?

  7. I'll a post on Seven Things to Know About Disney's Zorro TV Series.

  9. I cannot BELIEVE I never posted about the original Tron (1982). I can believe I never posted about 1979's The Black Hole because I only just came across a DVD of it earlier this year.

    1. Oops. Did I forget to add my blog?
      And both movies in one post, por favor.

    2. Got you down for them both, Quiggy. I have not yet seen Tron - it's one of the ONLY Disney films I haven't seen yet - so I look forward to your review.

  10. I'd love to participate and write about Marge Champion's Disney connections!

    - Jess

  11. Forget the last comment about Mary Poppins. I want to write about Disney’s Silent Laugh-O-Grams.
    Le from Crítica Retrô

    1. So glad to have you join the blogathon, Le! And thanks for covering something from Disney's silent era. :-)

  12. Hi, can I join with a letter from Roy Disney?
    Janet from Stars and Letters

    1. Yes, of course! Who doesn't love a good letter? I'll add you to the roster.

  13. It's kinda late, but I would like to write a couple posts if I could. One on my ten favorite Disney movie soundtracks, and another on a couple of Disney's historical fiction TV shows.
    My blog is: Old Books and Movies

    1. It's not late at all! And we are glad you can join with two posts! Great topics, too. We will be offering a few giveaway items at the end of the blogathon, so you will be entered twice for having two posts. ;-)
